Popular Telugu actor Kartikeya Gummakonda has tied the knot with his fiancé Lohitha Reddy in a grand wedding ceremony, today, November 21 in Hyderabad. Several big names from South Indian cinema attended the wedding and blessed the couple among whom included 'Megastar' Chiranjeevi, reputed veteran producer Allu Aravind, actor Sai Kumar, actress Payal Rajput, director Ajay Bhupathi among others. Kartikeya and Lohitha, who have been a couple for many years, were seen twinning in cream and gold attire, with the photos from the wedding ceremony going viral on social media. 

Kartikeya met Lohitha at the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Warangal, Telangana in 2010, and recently did a live on-stage proposal at the pre-release event of his upcoming Telugu film Raja Vikramarka. Introducing his long-time girlfriend to the audience and media persons gathered at the event, the Telugu actor said, "This is Lohitha, who has been my friend, crush, girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, friend again, best friend and fiancée and is now going to become my life partner." He further added, "I promised you that I would ask your father for your hand in marriage once I become a hero in films. I have fulfilled my promise today." Releasing pictures of their time together at the event on Instagram, Kartikeya wrote, "A moment that will be forever in my heart..❤️ @loh_reddy ..thank you for the amazing journey so far ..From nov21st you are going to be my wife and that’s giving me the goosebumps I had in 2010 when I first spoke to you.." 

On the work front, Kartikeya Gummakonda will be making his Tamil cinema debut in 'Thala' Ajith Kumar's Valimai coming out in theatres as a grand Pongal treat in January 2022. The highly-anticipated action film directed by H. Vinoth under Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP banner and featuring music by Yuvan Shankar Raja has been one of the most-awaited ventures in recent times in Tamil cinema, with a glimpse released sometime back receiving a stunning response. Kartikeya has risen to the top of the league in quick time after his debut in Prematho Mee Karthik in 2017. He then starred in the romantic action drama RX 100, which turned out to be a huge success.
